Formative assessment is an important strategy for improving student achievement in mathematics. This resource provides tools and examples that allow primary educators to gauge students' knowledge of core mathematics concepts and strengthen their ability to teach effectively.

The authors provide 25 formative assessment probes-brief, easily administered activities targeting specific mathematics ideas and concepts-to reveal common understandings and misunderstandings in student thinking. Field-tested with teachers and students at various grade levels, these powerful diagnostic tools help teachers modify their teaching and identify areas that require more instruction.

"Finally, a book to help teachers differentiate math instruction using their own, individualized, current data! This book provides practical, simple-to-use formative assessments that allow teachers to identify areas of difficulty, correct misconceptions, and guide learning." -- Renee Peoples, Fourth-Grade Teacher and K-5 District Math Facilitator
"This book is a much-needed resource for beginning and veteran teachers alike." -- Randy Wormald, Math Teacher
"This book offers ways for teachers to gain more insight into what their students know and don't know." -- Carol Amos, Teacher Leader/Mathematics Coordinator
